Stroke Development Program

This program has been developed to help young swimmers inspire a love of the sport of swimming while teaching them proper competitive swimming technique.

 

What is the goal of the Stroke Development Program?

  • Provide quality swim instruction for children 5-12.
  • Provide opportunity to acclimate to the water while learning safety in & around the pool.
  • Provide opportunity to learn proper technique

 

What level is my swimmer?

When starting stroke school, the child will be placed in the appropriate level (child will be placed in the lowest level that addresses skill gaps observed.) Reassessment of a child will be on the final Thursday of each 3-week session.Moving to the next level is based on mastery of skills in the current level. Once levels 1-3 are completed the child is eligible to join the Dolphin Swim Team!

  • Level 1: Freestyle
  • Level 2: Backstroke
  • Level 3: Breaststroke
  • Level 4: Butterfly
